    I was cleaning my retainers and I heard something cracked and noticed my top retainer has split down the middle where my two front teeth sit plus a bit of the plastic has come off. Also, there's a hole in my bottom retainer with a few cracks.

    I've had these for 3-4 months and I'm just wondering if I need another mold done? They already have a few molds of my teeth but is it necessary to have another one? I honestly don't think they've moved at all.

    I really don't like molds D:

    I crack my retainers a lot because I grind my teeth at night. I have to get new ones every few months because I wear them out so quickly, and I'm sorry to say I've had to get new moulds done every time, so it's likely you will too, although the procedure might vary between orthodontists

    I know, I hate getting moulds done too. The things they used to take the moulds always seem way too big and the material they use tastes gross. Just take deep breaths and remember it won't take long

    You're lucky, the one they use at my orthodontist tastes like paint
